Ann Shippy, MD
Welcome to Mold, Mycotoxin, and Chronic Illness Summit. I’m your host, Dr. Ann Shippy. And today I want to tell you a little bit about my own experience with mold. People that find out that I had a pretty well, actually several pretty serious run-ins with mold want to know what my experience was in late 2009. I woke up one morning after months of deteriorating, walked to the kitchen, grabbed a glass of water to take some supplements, and it slipped out of my hand. And I had broken glass everywhere. It was my wake-up call to really know how sick I was. My hair had been falling out in big clumps just covering the sink on the bathroom floor. I had so much pain in my body that I didn’t want my kids to hug me. I would feel more exhausted at the end of a weekend. And I, you know, even after resting, I just could not get a break. And I was losing the strength in my right arm. I was having fasciculation, which both of those things look like an ALS diagnosis, which really was pretty intimidating and scary. I had had other health issues that I had, you know, was so grateful for.
